The reluctant Nazi : searching for my grandfather by Gabrielle Robinson( )

6 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Robinson was mainly brought up by her grandparents. Her grandfather, known to her as Api, was an opthalmologist. Forty years after his death, she discovered a diary that he had kept beginning in April 1945, when he had left her and her grandmother in the countryside and returned to Berlin. Api had been an army doctor and as such, however reluctantly, he had had to join the Nazi Party. His diary is a heart-rending account of what is was like to live in Berlin as Hitler's Reich collapsed-- the hunger, the disease, the bombing, the threat of retribution from the occupiers -- and his struggle to survive, to shake off the stigma of being a Party member, to rebuild his life and to return to his beloved wife and granddaughter
Better Homes of South Bend : an American story of courage by Gabrielle Robinson( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1950, a group of African American workers at the Studebaker factory in South Bend met in secret. Their mission was to build homes away from the factories and slums where they were forced to live. They came from the South to make a better life for themselves and their children, but they found Jim Crow in the North as well. The meeting gave birth to Better Homes of South Bend, and a triumph against the entrenched racism of the times took all their courage, intelligence and perseverence. Author Gabrielle Robinson tells the story of their struggle and provides an intimate glimpse into a part of history that all too often is forgotten."--Back cover
German settlers of South Bend by Gabrielle Robinson( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of the first German immigrants to northern Indiana is the story of the beginnings of South Bend. The predominant immigrant group from the 1840s to the 1870s, the Germans helped build South Bend from an isolated trading post into a thriving industrial city. They also played a key role in transforming the surrounding wilderness into rich and fertile farmland. Using first-hand personal accounts and public documents, German Settlers of South Bend illustrates the lives of these pioneer immigrants and their growing city. The material has been collected from a large number of sources on both sides of the Atlantic, including more than 200 German letters from the 1840s to the 1870s that provide glimpses into the day-to-day lives of these early settlers and their families back in Germany. Descendants of immigrants from all over the United States and Germany have come forward with genealogies, stories, and pictures, providing a far-reaching portrait of the times
